Chicken Cordon Bleu

I decided to try something this week that I hadn't as gluten free yet. I knew I didn't want to do anything fancy so I planned to just keep it simple. Simple and quick.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

All you'll need is 4 chicken breast halves, 4 thin slices of some ham or proccuitto, 4 slices of swiss cheese and some toothpicks.

Pound the chicken out between 2 pieces of plastic wrap using the flat side of a tenderizer, or a rolling pin... or however you want to do it. Just don't mutilate the breasts.

Salt and pepper each piece of chicken, lay a piece of meat and cheese down and roll. Hold in place with a toothpick.

Put in a saute pan (I use cast iron so I could put it in the oven,) just under medium heat. Cook through (took 20 minutes or so for me.) Remove toothpicks before serving. I made a mustard sauce to go on them, but I'm sure there are many other things you could do. Have fun, make it your own.

What a great idea. I seem to have given up a lot recipes from our pre-GF days and forgotten them, too.

These look great. They held together so well and the cheese is still there. Last time I tried these the cheese all melted out. Now I don't eat dairy so I can skip that part. Very nice!

Looks delicious, I'm going to have to try these for my new bake ahead kick and maybe quad the recipe so I can freeze for later! I wonder how many I can squeeze into one pan :)

That looks wonderful. I haven't made this in a long time, but I don't know why. Thanks for the reminder.

Great picture. My wife and I love chicken cordon bleu. This is a good reminder that I need to make it again, it's been a while. Thanks.

I never knew chicken cordon bleu was so easy! Thanks for the recipe - I've never made this before, but now I'll have to try.
